Curse of the Fallen by H. C. Newell Review

Writer: H. C. Newell

Publisher: Indie

Genre: Fantasy

Publish Date: Out Now

Pages: 396

Reviewed By: Dean Asquith

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


This Child is not the chosen one. She is a demon to be destroyed.

Born of magic, Nerana is labelled a demon and forced into hiding by the Order of Saro. Living with a curse that binds her to their leader, Nerana seeks to free herself from their hold and soon learns that the path to redemption may prove more fatal than the Order itself.

But for Nerana, this is more than a quest for survival... It’s a promise of revenge.

Curse of the Fallen is the first instalment of the six-book epic fantasy series, Fallen Light.

My Opinion

A fantastical start to a new fantasy series for your bookshelf.

H.C. Newell introduces you to a set of characters that will be a family to you through this novel. The character of Neer is integral to this. She is an incredibly deep and committed character that pulls you into an unspoken bond. 

A story is true to the genre in that it is pure fantasy, taking inspiration I believe from many classic fantasy stories. An adventure through a wonderful new fantasy world awaits you!

The literal only gripe I have is the forced accent on Loryk. It’s an English/ cockney accent that was a bit unsettling to read as an Englishman.

Curse of the Fallen kicks off what promises to be a long running fantasy series like so many others in the genre. Great characters and a good story will entertain throughout.
